Retired LAPD Sgt. Cheryl Dorsey describes herself as a “TV police expert,” but that expertise (such as it is) apparently doesn’t extend to guns or the laws regulating their purchase and possession.
The 20-year police veteran appeared on a Los Angeles local news station earlier this week in the wake of the El Paso and Dayton massacres, and she revealed startling ignorance about firearm function, background check laws, and police authority.
“Who can ultimately get a gun is not the problem,” she said. “The problem is high-powered weapons. It’s weapons that go through walls in some instances, armory that officers wear. It’s the availability of a double-barreled magazine extended clips. Why would a regular person need all of that?”
